Born and raised in the Bogotá metropolitan area, Juan Pablo Vélez (also known as Táctile) discovered electronic music in his teens. After strictly DJing for a few years, took the next logical step to start producing their own music in 2010. From artists of Minimal and Techno with a strong dose of DJ’s in the same genre, Tác. focused on the programming of machines, dub basslines and dark atmospheres. By expressing a tireless work ethic, Algo. was soon noticed for his efforts by his local label MISCHWERK, launch of its signature and seal new in the headquarters in Bogotá, his music has sounded in countries like UK, Germany, Bulgaria, Mexico, Czech Republic, Argentina, USA and others… Shortly after, he signed with Italy-based music label limited Sorma Records.
About Tactile /
In the summer of 2010, Táctile played his first date with impressive performances with artists from Berlin or Christian Beuns KJK As more opportunities arise, willing to visit more international hopes to develop his trademark and operations center with a group of labels in the city of Berlin where you can fully develop their sound and taking their production to a higher level.
Every so often a new act arrives on the scene with something fresh and invigorating to say, promoting a new set of ideals that capture imagination of their rapidly expanding audience. Conceived in 2009 as a musical escape route from the clutches of conventional electronic dance music, Táctile unassumingly fall into this category and since Christian Beuns (Germany) and Deborah Azotte (Italy) spotted their potential in 2010, inviting them to release the Type 01 EP on Sorma, they’ve fast become a permanent fixture of the MISCHWERK family. Simply speaking, Bogotá DJ & producer Juan Pablo Vélez have arrived in the right place at the right time with a finely crafted mixture of techno & minimal - a distinctive hybrid that’s instantly recognisable as their own. Fourteen years of involvement in the Colombian music scene, both as performers and event organisers, have given them a unique insight into the evolution of electronic music. Together as Táctile, the potent combination of their experiences personify their vibrant live performances that have not surprisingly been drawing accolades across South America and more recently Europe and the U.K. Utilizing a mixture of synths, laptops, decks and effects, there’s something reassuringly familiar about the basslines and classic detroit/berlin sequences they use to dominate the dancefloor, but it’s their innovative approach to sound design and the adrenalin rush of their arrangements that really gets the pulse racing as they join the dots between past, present and future, pushing themselves and their machines to the limit in the process.
